Im tired searching on the web for an ActiveX control that can play real media content.

The usual activex that realone installs is RealAudio and it doesnt work for me when I try to open a video file or URL.

Anyone of you have been able to play .rm files or video content into delphi?

Thanks a lot.
Oliver Gonzalez.

Seems to work for me. I have the latest RealOne free player installed. You can import the ActiveX, it should be listed as "Real Player ActiveX Control Library (Version 1.0)" the file for the ActiveX is RMOC3260.DLL and classname TRealAudio.

For info on importing and installing an ActiveX component see

Once installed, you can set the hieght of the component to zero. And play a file on a TButton click,

RealAudio1.Source := 'http://delphi.about.com/library/media/audio/IntroDel.ram';

For more info on other methods see this site

Perhaps Oliver didn't find the comment useful but didn't reply back to say so. Oliver, if you found another solution to play those real audio files, can you please share the solution and close the topic?
